Today, I opened my pore´s client and it takes a lot of time. When the lobby appeared, it didn´t show my balance ($$). I tried to open my Cashier but didn´t work. I tried to registered for the next $500 freeroll because it will run in a few minutes. It takes my call but the confirmation of successful access didn´t appear. I started to fill a help message, but then the lobby was normalized, the confirmation of the register was shown, but all the tournament of this schedule was cancelled Confused

There were problems with signing up for certain tournaments but not for all. I couldn't register in Level 50 and 500 daily freeroll but 888 poker it was in function. 4000 + 500 of dollars remained in their account... I missed two chances to make a few more cents or dollars. Big Smile

Maybe different for different countries. Here, in Argentina, all the tournament at 17:30 GMT didn´t run and they were canceled. I talk about the freeroll and the tourney of 40 level in poker club. Is the first time that i saw CANCELED in the main lobby. I wait that this problem it was a passing difficulty, and we don't have to go through bad times like during 2018 Disagree

Yesterday i played level 40 and i got 20 cents. It was not canceled. Lvl. 50 was. I don't know what problems they had but 888 poker took advantage of this situation and they stopped some freeroll games. It's unfortunate and i don't like that this situation

It seems like it has been a bad week for poker sites across the platforms. I too noticed that there were problems with 888poker and couldn’t access the site during the week. PartyPoker also had trouble a the week end so on the whole not a great time for the poker providers. It must be a challenge to manage all those functions at he same time, but the solution really should be found to prevent problems on the recurring basis that it seems to be, especially at party.

I think that 888 poker have more problems with software then party poker and more often you cant play at their site,then others!but they really should change this software and to make something better!for me this looks very old and funny!they should someting better if they want more players!

More or less..888 was under serious attack a year ago. Previously, they has, as you said, problems with the software. I think that they had been made some agree with the hackers but it blackmail didn´t ended. A poker´s site is an attractive prey for the hackers, with a lot of money around, and less protection than a bank Disagree

Sometimes I had problems in the past , like I couldn't log in because the software was being upgraded (the same message I got for 2 days once ,haha , until I reinstalled the software and problem solved lol) . Or sometimes I get disconnected , it's true . But hackers' attack on 888poker ?? Seems unluckly to me for such a great site , more likely and possible the software instability problems , than an attack , not that it hasn't happenned in the past , even to the biggest pokerroom , Pokerstars once I remember .
I know and have experienced , such attacks , or other software problems that cause disconnection or the cancelation of tournaments , happen a lot on ACR platform , like this month . I don't know why this kind of problems occur so often on ACR ...

Many problems for the software of this poker room, but he fault belongs to the developers because they created something with many problems and after that some updates did not help for the first time or second. I remember and these problems they were for several weeks.

888
Party
GGNetwork/Natural8
ACR

all experienced some sort of outage or DDoS or something.

Party and GGNetwork/Natural8 told me on live chat. Both sites we had tournaments where some people could play and take our stack while we couldnt get in.

I cant play on 888 but people reported the DDos attacks starting with 888.

There is a video of ACR boss Phil Nagy apologizing as well.

$5k tournament in sunday will be with more than 10k players, and tha payout will be like 0,50$. And there will be players go all in with garbage hands. Only the +100 level tournament is where people play to win with good hands. I wish you luck peroni in targeted tournament.

888 Poker says it's right but i don't think so. There are many bots and their poker room was attacked several times in the last year. More than that it is very difficult to achieve something because there are people with illegal programs and they won't let you.

What bothers me the most is that: these cards do not come randomly, even if they say so. Is not true. They come bad for you and for others they come exactly what they need. In the bigger games i did not have this luck and that means they don't want to help you to achieve something good.

I have also experienced this problem regarding 888poker and antivirus . I use bitdefender , not that it matters which one you use , cause I see the same problem occurs to others , who use AVG , or other . It has blocked this program sometimes , I had to unblock it several times by giving the permission to this programm to run (again and again the same procedure ) , besides the risk warnings . I don't know why this happens , also some other failures when upgrading or trying unsuccessfully to open the lobby . They have to upgrade and improve their software to a better version ....

There will always be problems if this system is not properly developed or to be given some very tough laws and no one to steal with illegal programs anymore. The Internet is full of bots and they rob in many ways. Something needs to be changed.

And now...return the problems! The beloved wheel of fortune is not working. A message said that the server is off and you have to try later...I don´t know, if the problems were about the hacker´s attack like in the past, its would be a massive malfunctioning. This actual isue has to be for bad technical support. We could make a collection to help them, poor people! Disagree
